Castlegar's own Lisa Nicole to perform in Trail as part of release tour

Award-winning Canadian country music artist and Castlegar native Lisa Nicole is excited to announce the release of Mad About It to Canadian radio along with an accompanying music video in conjunction with a tour that will take her from the Canadian Kootenays all the way to Nashville.

Mad About It– co-written by Lisa Nicole and Olivia Wik - is the third radio single from Lisa Nicole’s award-nominated 2016 EP, Come Find Me. It is accompanied by a music videofrom award-winning director Edward Platero (Runaway Angel, Sarah Smith).

“It’s not in my nature to get mad, so developing this song and its video brought out my feisty side. Listeners will relate to the anger of being cheated on, but I think they will be equally inspired by the empowerment that comes from dealing with it and moving on,” says Lisa Nicole.

The last two0and a-half years have offered Lisa Nicole a continual career upswing. After winning the 2015 BC Country Music Association and Music BC-sponsored Artist Development Project, she earned a songwriting trip to Nashville and an opportunity to work with acclaimed Canadian country music producer Tom McKillip (Aaron Pritchett) and artist-producer Carly McKillip (One More Girl) which resulted in her EP Come Find Me in 2016.

A true independent artist, Lisa Nicole supported the release of Come Find Me with her own coast-to-coast Canadian tour before a trip to Nashville in April of 2017 allowed her to realize one of her lifelong dreams – singing an impromptu duet of We Were Us on stage with country music icon, Keith Urban, at pop-up concert in Music City. It was an experience that only increased her drive to succeed by doing what she loves.

“It has inspired me beyond words. Every time I see the video of us singing together, I still can’t believe that it actually happened,” she says.

Inspired by Keith Urban, Lisa Nicole will take Mad About It on the road for live shows in Western Canada and Washington State including Sun Peaks (Feb. 2), Trail (Feb. 9 at the Charles Bailey), Colville (Feb. 10), Banff (Feb. 16 and 17), and Calgary (Feb. 19). From there, she’ll head to Thunder Bay (Feb. 23 and 24) and Toronto before settling in Nashville for weekly shows at The Row from March through June.

Lisa Nicole will make the most of her extended stay in Nashville by immersing herself in the songwriting and musicianship of Music City and return to Canada with an arsenal of new material and life experience.

As for a reunion duet with Keith Urban, she says, “Let’s put it this way – if Keith Urban wants to sing with me again, I won’t get mad about it.”

“Mad About It” is available on iTunes as Spotify as a single or as part of Lisa Nicole’s Come Find Me EP.
